Kane County Divorce Lawyer: Childrens Rights Council weighs in on 'Parentectomies'

Childrensrightscouncil Illinois In fact, according to university researcher Dr. Emily Douglas, in "Mending Broken Families: social policies for divorced families", the overwhelming majority of divorcing fathers have wanted at least equal parenting time with their children, or sole custody -- and this has been consistent since the first surveys were undertaken in the early 1960s. Additionally, research by esteemed clinical psychologists like Dr. Joan B Kelly and others have substantiated that the persistence of Every Other Weekend "de-parenting" or "a-parent-dectomies" , applied almost entirely only to fathers, has resulted in children becoming emotionally detached, as 'their fathers were turned into uncles'. In fact, it was partially due to the research of people like Dr. Kelly, that a direct link was established between the 30% detachment rate between divorced dads and their children, and the Every Other Weekend 'visitation' schedules.
